What types of recommendations can be made for a violation of probation?

A probation officer must always include a recommendation as to the disposition of a case when filing a violation. The officer should be very familiar with the case and should have the best knowledge on what outcome would be most beneficial to the probationer as well as the community as a result. Recommendations could include reengaging in a treatment program, a short term of incarceration with probation continued, community service, and even up to revocation of probation supervision followed by a new sentence of incarceration if appropriate.
